Youtube blocked by default. Can it be changed? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Is it possible to change the youtube blocking only, so that youtube videos are shown on any page? Maybe through about:config page? I really like this plugin but I'd like to know if there is or could be such an option available.

Thank you for the suggestion! This is one of our older extensions, so you might want to look into our Disconnect Private Browsing extension that lets you unblock individual trackers:

The Google Octopus - It's Everywhere, It's Everywhere! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Like lymphoma, Google metastasizes across the World Wide Web into businesses, homes, phones, appliances, etc. – And happily facilitated by the useful idiots. For example: Keeping within the "Dumbing down of America" guidelines, ‘web developers’ no longer need to write or even understand Java – Let a Google server service handle Java for you! Google Disconnect is proof positive of how well Google invades one’s life under the guise of simplicity on the back of immediate gratification. Unfortunately for Google Disconnect, it might work too well, as more people and companies trade freedom for laziness.

Needs some fine tunning for sure. Please help us all out Developer. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Please include on the Main Ba of browser "An Icon Button" that users can use to turn this add-on OFF and back ON again when I need to see what's blocked. It is troublesome to have to go into the Firefox extensions page to disable and restart the browser to see Whats Been Blocked. Needs to have more control then current configuration, which is to just block ALL or NOTHING. I look forward to your update. Developer thank you for your time to make this add-on.

Blocking works, but so much? Uhmmmm.... Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Is tracking done by More and more sites are not hosting JavaScripts on their own but link to them on Google servers (there are reasons for, I don't follow them, but there are...) All those pages look crumbled

Captchas by Google are not displayed, either.

Couldn't it be possible to differenciate a little more?

And... if not... what does this addon makes sense after all - because when I want to "use" those pages I need to hit "unblock xyz google requests" without being able to say "this one yes, this one no". So I want to make the page usable, but my usage not trackable more then necessary.

This is a "all or nothing"-tool.

Please add a addon bar/bookmark bar button icon that I can use to turn this off when I need to see a video. That would take it from 3 to 5 stars. Its a pain to have to go into the Addon page to disable and restart to see a damn video.

Not sure what everyone's problem is. It blocks google. Google provide youtube, google maps & ReCaptcha, so it blocks those. You click the red urlbar icon, hit F5 to reload and voila, disabled on that page, couldn't be easier. Yes, if you filled out an entire page of form and then it's lost because you got to the ReCaptcha it's a really annoying, and if you're making a financial transaction it may be best to disable it (not as bad as NoScript blocking payment gateways) but it couldn't be easier to unblock it temporarily. Something like DoNotTrackMe might be more suitable if your choice between privacy and convenience is different.

Works, but blocks just a bit too much Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I quite often have to disable this tool to make sure the ReCAPTCHAS provided by Google and used on many web pages to make sure you are human are not visible. It would be nice if there were an option that the ReCAPTCHA embeddings are not blocked.

プライバシー侵害が甚だしい「Google」との接続をコントロール(切断/接続)するためだけに、特化したアイテムです。 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

このアイテムの人気と評判が芳しくないため、応援&弁護の Review です。

➡「ロケーションバー」内の右端側に “g” のアイコンが表示されます。アイコンが“赤”=「切断」、“黒”=「接続」を意味します。
③「切断(赤)」時に、(Google翻訳などの利用で)Google との接続をしたい場合には、このアイコンをクリックします。プルダウンのコンテキストメニューから「Block ? Google requests(B) 」をクリックするだけです。
④再び「切断」したい場合には、アイコンを “赤” くするだけです。
⑤このアイテムが有効状態の場合は、⑥default は「切断(赤)」なので、Firefox を終了(起動)するたびに、「切断(赤)」にリセットされます。

Google との「切断/接続」を確実に、簡単にコントロールができ、一切の不具合も認められません。簡単、確実、安心です。
この “Google によるプライバシー侵害” を憂慮するユーザーには、是非もなく推奨します。

Cant disconnect Disconnect! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

After uninstalling (properly, and according to all instructions) disconnect, it still operates as if still installed, yet it does NOT show up as an Addon in Addons of Firefox.

FireFox is v33.1.1
Disconnect AddOn for FF is v2.4.2

Also, since May of 2013, the addon STILL blanks Google Maps and ALL EMBEDED YouTube videos - that's just stupid.

it misses a usefull option,
we should have the possibility to chose wich request we want to block or unblock.
and infos about it to chose.

Shows you just how deep Google reaches into your life.... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works almost too well. A wake up call to those of you who do not realise how much Google spies on you, even on sites that have nothing to do with them.

Yes it blocks lots of ReCaptchas etc as many are provided by Google (nice way for Google to track you on sites they have nothing to do with)

Easily disabled on a site by clicking the red button.

You can't have it both ways - either you are happy for the Big G to track your every move, or accept some inconvenience by chopping off their creepy tentacles. I go for the latter.

I also have Facebook and Twitter disconnect too. Excellent tools. Should all be installed by default on every browser IMHO.

Does not do a good job. Blocks too much. Flash gets deactivated with no option to un-block. Do not see RE-CAPTCHA images and have to use other browsers for that. YouTube videos are blocked by default. I thought this would let me view the web as it is while protecting my privacy -- instead of blocking me from seeing any content.

not compatable with my homepage site. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

in using a favorite homepage site of mine (all my faves) with this addon, and after signing in, under all nine tabs which i had set up, there is nothing but a blank white page-absolutely no clickon icons are displayed, though each tab does.

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Does not give an option to activate Flash Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Appreciate the thought that went into this extension, but it renders browsing useless on most sites. I was wondering why images like CAPTCHA and other media weren't showing up. This extension is blocking Flash without an option to activate it. It would be great if a version of this extension could come out that still let you view CAPTCHAs and fill out forms.

Major Problem - Blocks ReCAPTCHA Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I love that it blocks the mess that Ghostery, Google Privacy, Disconnect, DoNotTrackMe, Social Privacy Protector, and TrackMeNot doesn't catch from Google but ReCAPTCHA is something that is necessary for many sites to work.
